My Home Page “WORKS FOR ME”

March 17, 2008 at 10:20 am 3 comments


I hate nothing worse than a distracting home page.  I’ve struggled through several in my computer life-time.  Your “home page” is the page that automatically comes up when you click Firefox or Internet Explorer Connection.  You can set your own page rather than Bellsouth or AT&T or whatever you use by clicking Tools|General (tab)|then see the Homepage box where you can put any address. 

Or just go to and let them set it all up for you!

NOTE on my iGoogle Home Page:  Current weather/To Do List I Can Type On/Vocabulary Word of the Day/Literary Quotes of the Day/Stocks/News Stories of the Day/Cooking Lite Recipes/Spanish Words of the Day/ Cool New Spring Theme that Changes from Day to Night Graphically/One Click Access to Google Mailbox

You can put any tools you want in there from a variety of interests…whatever you want to see when you sit down. 

The discerning will note the NOTE LACK OF: 

Ads of ANY kind/Annoying News I Don’t Like About Actors Lives/Shopping Lures that Distract/Photos of half-nude peoples.

Ahhhh….brain efficiency!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
